POP SONG 89
{intro:    A  A  D D A A D D D   x  3}
{ The opening lick is straight off an A blues scale.  I don't have my
  guitar here to transcribe it.  It doesn't sound good by itself anyway.
  Whistling is a great substitue when you have to play alone. Ha! Ha!
  no not the skin flute!}

  A        D        A           D
> Hello I saw you I know you I knew you
     A           D             A      D
> I think I can remember your name...name
A   D   A  D

  A          D       A     D
> Hello I'm sorry I lost myself
     A        D               A        D
> I think I thought you were someone else

  E         G                D         BaddE
> Should we talk about the weather?
  E         G                D         B
> Should we talk about the government?

{break:     B / / / B / / /  E / / / E7 / / /
            B / / / B / / / E / / / D/Dsus4
  the melody on the break isn't too hard to pick out. The notes
  are real close to the chords - often in them.  I think its weird
  that Pete didn't play them on the acoustic version.}

> Hello my friend are you visible today?
> And no one ever knew that it could be so strange...strange
> Hello I'm sorry I lost myself
> I think I thought you were someone else
